I like to use GuruNet. Alt-click on a word and you get dictionary, thesaurus, translations, and (if you pay) more. Works with any program that displays text.
I am a bit scared that this one would have some kind of spyware which is rampant with toolbars, etc. I don't see any privacy policy and my firewall flagged me on clicking on their links, which is a very rare event.

Ah, they really should link to their privacy policy on the homepage. That is a big concern these days and they are going to loose customers unless that information is obvious.
